    what do you all think about their bonds...they look very juicy at the moment. I think this company will be around for a long time. If they are acquired by another company that's still a good deal for the bond holders.

    Investmentwise, I still think NFLX is expensive. The business model has been making a large array of older movies available at a reasonable price. A major attraction for me is exploring the catalog. They don't have everything for which I've searched but, they do a reasonable job for the price. I agree with Seth that providing new content would be very expensive. Personally, I prefer the DVD service.
